Most infrastructure, including health care facilities, was destroyed during the war and there are few qualified health professionals, leaving 11 million people with little or no medical care. AMREF has a long history of working in Southern Sudan. During the war, we began training health workers, starting with clinical officers to address the critical doctor shortage. These health professionals can perform 80% of doctors' tasks, but are faster and less expensive to train. This photo shows an example of the state of roads in Southern Sudan. Moving around, particularly after rain falls, is very difficult.
